ABSTRACT

Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Unexploded Ordnance   [open pdf - 4MB]

"The Defense Science Board Task Force on Unexploded Ordnance, UXO, met from September 2002 to May 2003. The Task Force's charter contained two principal questions: (1) can advanced technology help reduce the very high cost of UXO cleanup at former and current test and training sites and (2) can advanced technology help minimize the environmental impact of future live-fire munitions training? The Task Force's answer to both these questions is a qualified "yes". This report describes the UXO cleanup problem and makes recommendations to save tens of billions of dollars in future cleanup costs."
